FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man is filing for divorce
from his wife, who is accused of handcuffing herself to him in a
bizarre attempt to reconcile.
In March, Fairfield police said they rescued Robert Drawbaugh at
his home, where they found him handcuffed to his wife with bite
marks on his torso and arms. They say he managed to use his cell
phone to call for help.
Drawbaugh filed divorce papers in Bridgeport Superior Court on
Tuesday, saying his seven-year marriage to 37-year-old Helen Sun
had "broken down irretrievably."
Sun is charged with assault and other crimes. Police say she
told them she used the handcuffs because it was the only way she
could have a full conversation with her husband.
